Cold German Potato Salad
November 03, 2015
"This is one of those true German recipes. My dear MIL is a "true" German. Trying to get measurements from her is like pulling teeth. I have made this for DH for 43 years now. I still throw it together without measuring so one day while preparing it I tried to eyeball the amounts. Hope it works for you and that it is enjoyed. There is no sugar included like most potato salads. DH does like mayo on the side. Time does not include chilling."
